Why You Must Obey Your Parents

obey your parents as a child
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Your parents are given to you by God. It’s not a mistake that you are their child. God expects you to obey your parents at all times. One of the reasons behind this is that they know and see things you don’t.

Your parents are guardians over you, and it will do you a lot of good if you can start seeing them like that. They have been entrusted with taking care of you here on earth; and understand that they will give an account of how well they did so to God. Therefore do all within your power to help them to make their work easy and to give God a great account of how they did their best. Obey your parents – that’s one of the ways to make their work easy.

The bible verse that speaks about obeying your parents is found in Colossians three and verse twenty. It reads:

“Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.”

That was not a suggestion from God; it was a command. This is what God has commanded; therefore God loves it when you are obedient to your parents in everything. Remember that pleasing God is a sign of obedience. Remember also that if you love God, you will always seek to do what pleases Him. And what better way to please God than to do whatever He says. Therefore, as a child be obedient to God even as it concerns your relationship with your parents.

May the grace to obey your parents be upon you always. Amen.

Prayer:
Father, thank you for my parents. May I be an obedient child to them. Amen.

Action point:
Ensure you listen to and obey your parents.

Declaration:
I am an obedient child. I obey my parents in all things.
